Thanks again Sue for all these wonderful transcripts - great snippets.
For those researching Barnabas SHAW - the BLORE connection below is brother
to William Luck BLORE who married Charlotte Elizabeth SHAW.
Take care

Saturday 8 July 1837

John Townsend BLORE AM will in the early part of next month open an Academy
for Young Gentlemen at No.18 Roeland-street. It is his intention not to
receive as Pupils any under 10 years of age, nor any at that age or above it
who are unable to read and spell English with moderate correctness.
He will administer Instruction in the English, Latin and Greek languages; in
Ancient and Modern Geography; in Ancient and Modern History; in the Science
of Mathematics, in Book-keeping and in Writing. For Tuition in any or all of
these Branches of Education his charge will be £1 per month for each Pupil.
To those who may be desirous of studying the French Language, a Class will
be open thrice a week. An extra charge of One Guinea per Quarter will be
made for teaching this Language.
A Competent Person will give Lessons in the Art of Drawing.
As the great design of all Education should be to inform the mind, and to
produce good intellectual and moral habits, J.B. will sedulously endeavour,
by a proper system, to fulfil this end in respect to those who may be
committed to his care.
J.B. will be happy to give information regarding the conduct of the Academy
to any who may apply for it, and requests that all applications be made in
writing, and forwarded to the Office of Mr. John BLORE, Auctioneer, No.10
